Wise Words of Love

women’s chorus / piano

Wise Words of Love wends its way through a colorful landscape of various aspects of love in nine short movements. A unique collection of lines spoken by women characters in various plays by William Shakespeare (1564-1616) serves as the text. Drawing from Shakespeare’s comedies and tragedies alike, the viewpoint starts out firmly tongue-in-cheek, then swings, pendulum-like, to deeply romantic, and then back again. Text painting, musical archetypes, occasional humor, and consonant and dissonant harmonic language join together to reflect and express love’s changing moods.
